The George Merrick Italian Village is probably the most difficult to find of his themed villages, at least to the extent that if you drive or bike by it, odds are you probably won’t even notice it as being out of place or distinct in an way. The Italian Mediterranean / Mediterranean Revival style has survived and thrived in the post Merrick years and it would be safe to say is a highly dominant style in Coral Gables, to anyone passing by its just another cluster of these homes, that happen to look a little older. There are also no clear boundaries for the village as say the Chinese Village with its walled compound feel or the Dutch African Village with its tight cluster of whitewash. There were a group of Architects who contributed to the village, Alfred L. Klingbeil, Robert Law Weed, John and Coulton Skinner, and R. F. Ware, who built between 1925 and 1927. This also happens to be one of the biggest villages, with 17 original homes, we think most of them are still intact, although its hard to be 100% certain. The Village is just south of Bird Road and west of Coral Gables Senior High – sort of the heart of the village is where San Esteban Avenue and Segovia Street meet.
